Wooden chandeliers, an elegant and refined piece of furniture


Chandeliers are a very important piece of furniture, able to emphasize the style of a room or give it a slightly dissonant note that enhances its personality.

The wooden chandeliers, in particular, stand out for their refined aesthetics due to the natural material, available in a wide range of warm and amber tones or colder and gray, light or dark tones and with more or less decisive and evident veins depending on the essence, of the direction of cutting and processing.

Furthermore, wood, having a low heat transmission index, is particularly suitable for creating a lighting body because it reduces the risk of overheating.

There are numerous models of wooden lamps but the main trends are only two: modern wooden chandeliers with simple and very linear shapes or inspired by the industrial style, and recycled or vintage chandeliers, which are inspired by the shapes of the past.


Wooden lights inspired by pure forms


A very interesting first type of chandeliers for wooden ceilings is inspired by pure geometric shapes such as polyhedra and regular polygons.

E27 by Chrasy, available on Amazon, is a series of lamps with a very low cost, formed by thin wooden slats assembled to form a different geometric figure: a hexagon, a square and an equilateral triangle with rounded corners. Each of them therefore frames the central lamp holder, deliberately large and evident.

The same features are also found in some proposals by Miliboo, an online portal which talks about contemporary furniture.

The Bosco and Dune models, in a certain sense, are the three-dimensional version of the collection described above.

The first consists of a very simple framework of wooden strips in the shape of a parallelepiped which inside contains one or five lamps depending on the version. These models constitute the vintage reinterpretation of the ancient incandescent bulbs and are characterized by particularly developed central filaments, with a clear decorative intent.
Lampadario in legno Dune di MilibooThe setting of the Dune chandelier is also similar, but the cage for the central lamp holder is a tetrahedron, which is a regular pyramid with faces in the shape of an equilateral triangle. These are therefore very interesting vintage wooden chandeliers.


Designer wooden chandeliers


The proposals for designer chandeliers in wood and related materials such as straw and bamboo are also very promising.

Bamboo wood chandeliers


Miliboo proposes the contemporary re-edition of the traditional straw and woven rope chandeliers thanks to two different models.



Cup is a pendant lamp with a graceful flared shape with a diameter of 50 centimeters, sinuous lines and an intertwining of black bamboo elements inspired by basketry, which when lit creates interesting plays of light and shadow on the walls. Wild also belongs to this collection, but its shape is cylindrical and it has a much denser texture.

Lampadario in legno di olivo di WanosLuce by Miliboo, on the other hand, is completely different, being an industrial wooden chandelier made up of a very simple bamboo cane to which the thick and coarse cables of five hanging lamps are rolled up.

Modern wooden chandeliers


Tamasine Osher'sproposals focus on the exaltation of the natural grain of the wood, skilfully highlighted by the simple and very linear shapes of the three collections Cupola Pendants, Cupola Chandelier, Cupola Poise Chandelier and Cupola Poise Wall Light.

The first is a series of wooden pendant lamps, which, as their name implies, are characterized by a flared and rounded lampshade that recalls the shape of an inverted dome.

Available in nine different shapes, these suspended wooden chandeliers can be hung individually or in sequences of several lights, allowing customization.

The Cupola Chandelier and Cupola Poise Chandelier lines are two models of this collection: they are in fact compositions directly inspired by contemporary art, formed by pendant lamps in the shape of an onion supported by black or gold-colored metal rods, which closely resemble mobiles by Calder or Bruno Munari's machines.

Dome Poise Wall Light is, on the other hand, the wall version, consisting of an applique with a single rod and a lampshade on each side.

Two proposals Wood Lamp Design are also very interesting: the Wave wooden chandelier, which recalls a solidified sea wave as it is about to break, and the Dome model with an unusual concave shape.

Both are available in five different colors and essences: oak, wenge, Carbon Look, glossy black and glossy red.


Handcrafted wooden chandeliers: some of the proposals


The last and quite interesting trend is made up of handcrafted wooden chandeliers, often real unique pieces of great value: Wanos offers a wide range.

Chandeliers with sea logs, wood logs and recycled material


Some of the winning ideas of this brand consist in creating lamps with sea wood, that is collected on the beach, or in building a lamp with recycled material.

This second type includes the wooden and rope chandeliers formed by the segment of an ancient wooden table, some very coarse ropes and old glass jars transformed into light bulb holders.

There is no shortage of chandeliers with wooden trunks as well, especially of centuries-old olive and chestnut trees, carefully chosen for their particular shapes, then subsequently stripped, polished and worked to adapt them to the ceiling of suspended lamp holders.

Handcrafted resin and wood chandeliers


The last process instead consists in taking the segment of a wooden log, sawing it to obtain a flat surface, smoothing it and then filling the cavities with colored resin, with a result that closely resembles an abstract painting.

A splendid handcrafted chandelier in olive wood and black resin is built this way. Also, there is a second black and white wood chandelier, obtained by pouring white resin into the cavities of a piece of chestnut with particularly pronounced veins.

These are handmade wooden chandeliers, which presuppose a great mastery of the material and give any kind of space a strong personality.
